When an overconfident dude tells a woman to shush up ... here’s what that really means.
Why are men telling women how women should feel about rape? Why are 80% of opinion pieces written by dudes? Why are guys retweeted twice as often as women?
Mansplain? What kind of word is mansplain?!
Let's define it.
"Even though he knew she had an advanced degree in neuroscience, he felt the need to mansplain 'There are molecules in the brain called neurotransmitters.'"*
What does mansplaining look like in the real world?
Female doctors can't treat their patients as well.
Female students can't participate as much.
We just don't see women's opinions as often as men's. The information marketplace literally buys more men's opinions.
I propose a way to put and end to mansplaining.
It's a concept called...
"Even though they were very interested in having their opinion be considered about neuroscience, they took into account that others probably felt the same way and maybe had interesting things to say. So they waited, listened, and were a decent human."
